The Era skate shoe by Vans carries on the tradition of performance skate wear. This shoe is a classic and helped inspire generations of skate shoes. The shoe has many great features from canvas uppers to the vulcanized waffle outsole. This skate shoe will help you land tricks and look cool in the streets or in the parks. This shoe is durable as well as stylish. The Van's revolution provided for a multitude of quality skate shoes and the Era shoe is no exception.
i have these shoes in grey suede and they look awesome and i wear them all the time; to school, out to dinner, on weekends. I've had them for ages and the suede has been very durable. Sometimes though they do pull my sock down off my ankle. overall a great shoe that looks sick
imo, the best casual sneaker you can get. goes great with everything from shorts to jeans, even suits if you like. These aren't for skating or any other sports for that matter, there just isn't enough cushioning and support. great for short walks or just chilling at the park or lounge. a classic in every sense of the word
These shoes are fine doing stuff around the house, or hanging out shoes, but other than that they aren't too great. The soles are soft, so when you are using these shoes for what they were created for (skating) the sole wears down quickly. The material; usually suede, used on the shoe is thin, so they are likely to let water in, and when skating, and doing any tricks that involve the board touching the shoe, the material will rip over time (not that long of a time span.)
These shoes are fine if you aren't planning on doing much with them
These shoes look good and are great for casual use. But I find that the lack of cushion makes me worry about my feet a whole lot more when skating. Also, like all Vans, theres a durability issue. Bottom Line: Wear them around casually, but if you plan on being active, get another shoe
